IWP Linked Course Offerings for Winter 2015

The award-winning Interdisciplinary Writing Program (IWP: https://depts.washington.edu/engl/iwp) links writing courses with lectures across campus.  For students new to the University of Washington, these paired lecture/writing courses create a learning community that can be a wonderful introduction to the UW, and to research, writing and learning resources on campus.  All IWP courses are capped at 21 students and include individual conferences with the instructor to discuss drafts of papers. These 5-credit writing courses fulfill either a “C” or “W” requirement, and up to three IWP Links can count toward graduation credits.

IWP courses are linked both to general education lectures at the 100 and 200 level, and to upper division courses designed for students entering majors (such as English 301, Sociology 316 and English 491/Community Literacy Program). Also – up to two Writing Links (10 credits total) taken at the 200 level, such as ENGL 297A/297B/297C, can count toward the English Minor: http://depts.washington.edu/engl/ugrad/minor.php.

To enroll in an IWP Writing Link, students register first for the lecture course, and then for the Link.  There are no prerequisites for IWP courses, even at the 200 level.  Any student eligible to take the lecture is also eligible to take the Link, and Writing Links offer an excellent opportunity for students to develop their writing skills and confidence in a course that supports their learning in the linked lecture.
